Ciara and her husband, Russell Wilson, have revealed they are expecting another baby. The singer and the Seattle Seahawks quarterback announced the pregnancy news on their respective Instagram accounts on Thursday morning.
The 34-year-old singer made the announcement by posting a pic of herself striking a pose in a bikini while standing on rocks during the couple’s vacation in Turks and Caicos to show off her growing baby bump. In the caption, she simply wrote, “Number 3.” On Wilson’s page, he posted a selfie with Ciara posing in her bikini in the background.
Ciara and Wilson have been married since 2016, and a year later they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Sienna Princess. The Melanin singer also has a five-year-old son named Future Zahir who she shares with her ex-fiance, Future.
“They’re so excited to expand their family,” an insider tells People magazine.
During a recent appearance on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, Ciara talked about falling in love with Wilson after calling off her engagement to Future. She explained that dating as a single mom was intimidating at first, but Wilson made things easier. The couple started dating when her son Future Zahir was just ten months old.
“It was different. I never had that feeling in my life,” Ciara said. “It was just like, it was calm … It’s a different level of love.”
In November 2019, she told PureWow that being a mom has shown her that there’s nothing women can’t do. Ciara explained that she feels really empowered having her kids in her life, and her greatest accomplishment by far was having them. Ciara added that she can’t imagine her life without her kids, and life without them is not nearly as good as it is with them.
The Game alum said that she hopes her kids can one day look at her and say that “anything is possible” because their mom went after what she wanted to achieve and did it. Ciara hopes to pass down “those nuggets of inspiration” to her kids so they will go after what they want in life.
Ciara is scheduled to perform at the Rolling Stone Super Bowl concert in Miami on Saturday. She will take the stage with DJ Khaled and Paris HIlton at SLS South Beach.
